comment dhcpd does not allow filename option with a colon in it
Is there any NTFS, (v)FAT or similar filesystem somewhere? The colon ":" is a forbidden char for them...

@IonicăBizău --- that is a pseudo-file, do not edit it with vim ever. Get a root shell (with sudo -i) and use the aforementioned commands.

comment Creating an alias to Change Directory and have that directory be the current working directory in new terminal tabs
It works here (Ubuntu 14.04, zsh, gnome-terminal) with alias do='cd /tmp && sleep 1000'. But I remember I needed to put . /etc/profile.d/vte.sh in my .zshrc to have the auto-cd of new tabs working in all the cases --- I don't know if this could help your case.
